Medical malpractice is a negligent act or omission by a health care professional that causes injury or harm to a person. Even though health care professionals are generally well trained and experienced, they occasionally make mistakes. When they do the impact on that patient can be devastating.
If you have been a victim of medical malpractice it is critical that you consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney. In order to successfully pursue a medical malpractice claim, your attorney must have a deep knowledge of this specialized field of law. Malpractice claims are costly and difficult largely because insurance companies vigorously defend these claims, even when the negligence of the health care provider is clear.
If you are struggling with the consequences of medical malpractice, it is imperative that you hire an attorney with the knowledge and experience to successfully handle your case. At Semple & Eicher we have been handling complex medical malpractice actions for more than 25 years. We have a long and proven track record of success in these cases.

Legal malpractice occurs when a lawyer fails to exercise reasonable legal care while attending your legal problem. Let’s face it – we take our most important legal problems to lawyers because we cannot handle those problems ourselves. When your lawyer fails to represent you properly, your financial loss can be life changing.
Common examples of legal malpractice include:
- Failure to timely file necessary court documents
- Failure to know and understand the law applicable to your case
- Failure to be thoroughly prepared and/or thoroughly attend to all of your legal issues
- Failure to refer you to a specialist or seek co-counsel when the case it outside of the attorney’s area of expertise
- A simple failure to diligently represent the client
- Ethical lapses and other misconduct
At Semple & Eicher we have successfully represented individuals and businesses in legal malpractice actions for over 25 years. When your lawyer has failed to represent you properly or has engaged in unethical or improper conduct we will help you recover what you lost and take action to prevent future misconduct.
PERSONAL INJURY/WRONGFUL DEATH
Personal injuries and/or wrongful deaths can arise out of many different circumstances. Some of the most common circumstances causing injury and/or death claims are automobile collisions, trucking collisions, motorcycle collisions, and slip and fall cases. People who suffer serious injuries from these cases endure life changing consequences. Unfortunately, some families endure the death of a loved one as a result of one of these cases.
If you have suffered a significant injury or if a family member has died as a result of someone else, you will need a lawyer to deal with all the legal issues you will face. The insurance companies who handle these claims have teams of lawyers dedicated to paying as little as possible to you for your loss.
